yespr (39085) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a bubbly tan head. Wineous and fruity aroma, very pleasant and inviting. Mild sourness shining through. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. Sweet and distinct fruity initial flavour. Light brett touch following. Good blend between the bourgogne wine fruity notes and the podge beers notes of malt, chocolate and yeast. Mild fruity flavoured into the finish. Light wooden note.

TBone (15622) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2009
Bottled 75cl (PBF, courtesy of brunnsbe). Dark brown color, small beige head. Dark muscovado sugar in light nose. Quite light body for 10.5% beer. Dark sugars, some tannines from wine barrels, light sourness mixed with sweetness. Not much imperial stout character, but has got lots of flavors from bourgogne barrel. Wineous.

Christian (12554) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2009
Dark ruby brown beer with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of coconut and vanilla oak, some wine notes, cocoa powder and caramel. Sweet caramel flavour with oak notes, and a tannin finish.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Draft... Pours dark and crimson with a small, bubbly, off-white head. Decent retention. Smells chocolaty, woody and acidic. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Equally bitter and acidic. A touch nutty and buttery. Not as sweet or chocolaty as I expected. Lengthy, tangy, mildly bitter finish.

nimbleprop (7004) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle shared at the DC Local tasting. Opaque, mahogany amber with a cloudy, white head. It does not look like an imperial stout. Aroma is fruity, woody, tart. Flavor is all fruits, apples, pears. Not what I expected.

Pour many thanks to Dr. Bill at the SD strong ale fest. Pours a brown with off-white head. Roasted malt, chocolate, fruit, hay, tart, and a touch of oak. Interesting beer, which I did enjoy. Medium body.

Bottle@Home. Very fruity aroma, red & black berries, lactic. Opaque colour, fine beige head, good lace. Sweet, light sourish, light bitter, fruity (berries), vanilla, red wine. Bit thin but burning in your throat. Flavourful and certainly not an average beer.
